Ah Ha Moments

 whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these,  John 14:12


   Yesterday I had breakfast with my husband, daughter and son-in-law when God me gave an “ah ha” moment.  As we were lingering over our beverages, we started talking about a website I had created.  I was explaining what my thoughts and hopes were for the website.  I was hoping to pick up some pointers on how to work a few of the kinks out of the site.  While we were talking, my daughter’s husband asked me a question that stopped me in my tracks.  He asked me what I would do if someone wanted to order, what seemed to me, an astronomical amount of the item I was selling.  It was at that moment that I realized that I was not thinking big.  I was thinking sell a few and he was thinking sell a lot.  It was then that I also realized how that thinking can carry over into the spiritual realm.  Sometimes I fail to think big enough in my faith.  I want God to do small things for me; when his desire is to do big things in my life.  I think in my case I fail to consider big dreams because it will move me out of the comfort zone and into the unknown.  God wants us to believe we can move mountains and see possibilities.  Thanks and praise be to God and for people who help us to set our sights on the stars, not just the clouds.
